Most cases are starting to be produced with SATA external connectors and it is a faster connection port than USB connection.
Set up a SATA drive in an "Icy Box" with SATA to SATA cables included.. unless you need to transfer regularly data to other computers, then Benimur is right on the button.. connect inside, setup & forget it

There are three more SATA connectors on the MOBO There is room above the factory drive to install another drive.

Hi,

A desktop PC would normally have capacity for 4 IDE devices such as 1 CD/DVD, 3 HDs or any combination limited to a total of 4. Additionally, most current PCs have 2 SATA connection points. If for some reason all are occupied and hence your post "no available slot", you may want to consider using an external storage device attached via any USB port of your PC.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    A quick answer to your post would be yes.

    However, experience has taught me that internally connected proved to be faster. Further there are occasion that external are not recognized and would require fiddling around. Likewise, I've done so many repair/recovery on USB external storage devices of clients that I am more inclined to an internal hardwired storage.

    Cheers.

INSTALL A NEW HARDDRIVE TO MY HP PAVILION A1220N ERROR MESSAGE COMES UP BOOT MGR IS MISSING


You need to install an operating system like windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Linux OS. Your hard drive is blank now and needs programming. If you have a friend that can clone your old drive then they will be able to copy everything from your old drive as it was to your new one. Might need to contact a local computer technician to re-install windows for you if not sure. Also you need to consider the price of windows XP, Vista or 7 if you don't have a copy!! Good luck!!

Hp pavilion a1220n shuts dwn after loading hp8500 pr drv xpsp3 os


If you can boot into safe mode, then once in safe mode open system restore and then restore to a couple days prior to the install of the hp drivers. This should fix the problem. If you need to know how to get into system restore let me know your operating system (Vista or XP)
